We are continuing our synthetic investigations in the ternary A/Bi/Se systems and also expanded our interests into the quaternary A/M/Bi/Se (A = Rb, Cs, Sr and Ba; M = lanthanide or Pb) systems. We have synthesized several new ternary and quaternary bismuth selenides with band gaps <0.6eV such as Cs2Bi7.33Se12, A2Bi8Se13 (A = Rb, Cs), Ba4×xBi6+2/3xSe13, and Ba3±xPb3±xBi6Se15. The synthesis, crystal structures and charge transports properties of these new compounds are presented.
